    Second visit to this retreat and it was as good as the first time. Quiet and peaceful would be a good description with extermly good accommodation and very friendly staff. We stayed for three nights this time and this was just right. Check for Seniors deals when available as they can be very rewarding. ...more

    Spent a very relaxing two days in this tranquil place set in a little rainforest corner. From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome and offered our complimentary glasses of sparkling wine and yummy chocolates. Our host suggested we may want to have these on the side deck overlooking a lovely little creek flowing through the property.  ...more

    Absolutely fantastic. Only down side is that we didn't stay long enough to really take advantage of all The Escarpements facilities (2 nights). Also loved the fact that we were a short walk from the St Bernard Hotel where we had a wonderful meal. Will definitely be back for a much longer stay. ...more

    Peter and Tessa are wonderful - they gave our stay that personal touch and no effort was spared. Really interesting couple who are an asset to The Escarpment! My only negative is that the rooms are a bit dark - some color needed. Great breakfast and good coffee. We will be back! ...more
